I quite like the look and feel of the Asus Transformer Book T100 which
appear to run Linux pretty well now days (we have one at work for debugging
stuff around campus, though it still runs windows), that was my other
thought to buy one for replacing my aging netbook with somehting that has a
reasonable battery life for conferences, travel and such.
